    Yep. Cyclists have always been the happiest every time they've done the survey. Who else deliberately lengthens their commute on occasion just so they can have more of it?

    I think the most interesting part of that segment was the commuter connections survey data at the end. It said that car/van pool commuters make up 5% of commuters in DC and bicyclists make up 4%. For roughly equal numbers of commuters, far more resources and infrastructure are dedicated to car/van pools with the various DOTs. Imagine if they closed down Rt 50 into the city (a la I-66 HOV) during rush hour for bikes. It seems ridiculous, but literally this survey shows that the populations being served are equal.
